GAS INSTALLERS & APPLIANCES
Why Gas (LPG)
Liquefied petroleum gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG or LP gas), also referred to as simply propane or butane, areflammable mixtures of hydrocarbon gases used as fuel in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles.
An Exceptional Energy
As a clean, lower carbon, efficient and innovative energy it offers benefits to consumers, industry and the environment. With immediate and global availability, environmental benefits, its natural by-product origin, transportation flexibility and diverse application, LPG plays a pivotal role in the transition towards a more secure, sustainable and competitive energy model.
A Recycled product
LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons, produced from natural gas and oil extraction (66%) and from oil refining (34%). As an associated gas, it is automatically generated during the production of methane and during the refining process itself. If LPG wasn’t captured at this point, it would have to be destroyed through flaring or venting, an unacceptable waste of an immediately available and exceptional energy source.
Why use LPG?
LPG is an exceptional source of energy which can be used in different applications. LPG offers several advantages like:
can be transported, stored and used virtually anywhere in the world. It does not require a fixed network. One unit of liquid has the same energy content as270 units of gas. This is the reason LPG is liquefied to make it easy and efficient to transport and store.
has very clean burning and has lower greenhouse gas emissions than any other fossil fuel when measured on a total fuel cycle. Originating mainly from natural gas production, it is also non-toxic and will not contaminate or aquifer in the event of a leak.
can be accessible to everyone everywhere today without major infrastructure investment. Nothing needs to be invented and there are enough reserves to last many decades.
is cost-effective, since a high proportion of its energy content is converted into heat. LPG can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels,resulting in less energy wastage and better use of our planet’s resources.
is a multi-purpose energy. There are more than a thousand applications, from cooking, heating, air conditioning and transportation, to cigarette lighter and even the Olympic torch.
Where can it be used?
One of LPG’s greatest strengths is its versatility, with over 1000 different uses: in the home for heating and real flame cooking; in the garden for barbecues; in your vehicle to lower your transport costs; commercially in forklift trucks, farming, industrial heating, catering and caravan parks to name a few...to read more click below..
